Excuse Me?!؟

Semaphore WTF

You can always explain things with cats, but I wasn’t prepared for this unbelievably stupid move by Drumpf. What he did was obstruction and none of the lawyers he has surrounded himself with has the courage to tell him.

The law firm that is trying to tell people that Drumpf has no ties to Russia, with exceptions, failed to note that it was “Law Firm of the Year” in Russia in 2016. The credibility gap at the White House is measured in light years.

This is not amusing. I watched the Watergate hearings in a motel room in Dallas waiting to get a new head put on a Datsun 2000 to finish my transfer to the Presidio of Monterey. This time the magnificent voice of Barbara Jordan is missing and Harvard Law graduate Sam Ervin isn’t available to skewer witnesses with his Carolina drawl and ‘just an old country lawyer’ line. Drumpf has hinted at a ‘secret taping system’ in a not so veiled threat to James Comey, which is odd considering that the a recording would probably show that Comey has been truthful while “Drumpf is Trumpful.

The “funny” thing is that the Russians own Trump. They absolutely do. If they wanted regime change here in the USA all they’d have to do is open a Trump account on Cyprus with $45 million or so with links to some oligarchs and hello President Pence. Not that they would… Drumpf is working out fine for them. See

Drumpf. doubtfully, could be right in that he has no ties to the Russian government. But ties to the Russian mob? The Russian government has ties to their Mob and, by the law of contagion, those tied to common links are also tied to each other.

Putin is ex-KGB and the KGB used organized crime as an auxiliary for break ins and other activities, as well as an occasional hit. After the Soviet Union fell, many KGB officials took over the criminal groups they used. The Russian ‘mafia’ is a department of the Putin government. Every entity in Russia that makes money is absorbed sooner or later by the government. You can’t be an oligarch without Putin’s approval.

The Russians have been laundering money through real estate transactions. They buy a property , usually at an inflated price, and then sell after a few years, usually at a loss The money they received for the sale can be put in the banking system. Since they lost money the tax people aren’t on their case and the amount they lose is almost always less than having someone launder it for them.

This past week has been utterly cray-cray. Rolling Stone has a great round-up. My favorite moment was Sean Spicer yelling a press conference in the dark from in some bushes. Oops, sorry, “between” some bushes, as his irate correction sent to the Washington Post noted. WTF?! I need to watch SNL tonight, this is crazy!

Someone needs to bring Spicey a shrubbery, LOL.

They missed that the Big Easy ‘fired’ Jeff Davis. They should have used a dress instead of pink bubble wrap. 😉 [local joke, y’all]

It was like driving in heavy snow with vehicles packed in on all sides and then the world in front blazes red – no place to go, no way to stop. All you could do is watch from the side and wait for the final hub cap to land on the road spinning…

The White House press office can’t keep up because he can’t remember the last lie he told.

So when the SNL skits on Saturday night were frickin’ hilarious but not half as hilarious as the mind blowing stupidity that was the Trump Administration last week… we have a problem, people.

SIGH!

Yes, it has reached the point that is difficult to tell which is satire. When the press secretar4y hides “among” the bushes and won’t come out if there are lights, that is beyond strange.
